Impending Logo launch has AFA at ready

by Jeremy Hooper

   As the launch of LOGO draws closer, the good folks at the American Family Association are stepping up their gay-unfriendly attacks and predictions. Actually they are just repurposing old attacks and predictions, as today's Agape Press "news story" is really just a verbatim rehash of statements Tim Wildmon made back in April, but who's paying attention?

Wildmon's comments are of the typical "gays are evil, I'm teeming with morals, my poo smells like roses, and I live on a plane holier than thou" variety that are par for the course for Mr. 'born to be Wild'mon. But the one that really gets our gay goat, is Mr. W's outright fear-mongering tactic of saying that "he sees potential for late-night programming on the network to turn pornographic in nature." LOGO has not given even the slightest indication that they are considering porn, but who the hell needs facts when you have your all-knowing pro-family crystal ball. It's much easier to incite boycotts with "your kids will be exposed to hardcore banging" than with "gay kids might finally see characters with whom they can relate, acting as normal humans instead of over the top foppish caricatures."

Look for the non-pornographic LOGO to launch June 30.
